Apple Pecan Coffe Cake

I tried a new coffee cake today; not nearly as sinfully delicious as my banana coffee cake but still quite tasty.

Apple Pecan Coffee Cake

  • 1/4 cup butter ~ softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 apple
  • 1/4 cup pecan pieces
  • 2 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Cream together softened butter and sugar.  Add egg and vanilla mixing well; stir in sour cream.  Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir until just combined.  Peel and dice apple.  Add 1/2 of the apple to the batter.

In small bowl combine remaining apple, brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans.

Pour batter into buttered pie pan and top with apple mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes or until tooth pick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.

Banana Coffee Cake

I had a couple of very ripe bananas on my counter and couldn’t decide what to do with them.  I saw a coffee cake recipe and just had to give this a try.  I made a few changes and reduced the size of the recipe and came up with this amazing recipe.  So moist like a crumb cake and the banana flavor was fantastic.  I had a bite a couple of hours out of the oven and enjoyed it for breakfast as well!  This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Banana Coffee Cake

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 o.z. cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Cream together butter, cream cheese, and sugar.

Slice bananas and stir in mashing up a bit.

Add vanilla and egg and stir together. Combine flour, baking soda, and baking powder; stir into banana mixture.  In separate bowl combine brown sugar, pecans, and cinnamon.  Stir half of this into banana mixture.

In greased 9 inch pie pan pour batter, top with remaining pecan mixture.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 – 30 minutes or until browned and toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
